TDSB schools receive national recognition for business ventures

The TDSB’s McMurrich Junior Public School and Albion Heights Junior Middle School are two of just ten schools to receive national recognition from The Learning Partnership (TLP) for outstanding classroom business projects developed through its Entrepreneurial Adventure program

The Entrepreneurial Adventure program teams kindergarten to Grade 12 classes with business mentors to help students develop entrepreneurial and other essential 21st century skills such as communication, collaboration, presentation, marketing, business planning and the importance of social responsibility.  The program is consistent with the national charity’s mandate to build partnerships to support, promote and advance publicly funded education in Canada. 

TLP’s culminating Entrepreneurial Adventure showcase and awards ceremony features school projects demonstrating originality, enterprising spirit, teamwork and impact on school and community. Showcase events are held in public venues, providing a real-life opportunity to practice pitching and public speaking skills while gaining confidence in the process. Each selected award-winning venture receives $500 that goes to further enhancing and developing their school’s entrepreneurial pursuits.

This year, the “Originality” award was presented to McMurrich Junior PS for developing an innovative and unique approach to deliver a product/service. The students from McMurrich hosted a Business Day event where they showcased ventures that explored the nature of ‘play’ to create inventive and intriguing games. They used the latest web tools, such as Wiki Forum and Google Apps for Education to research, develop and complete various business related tasks. 

Albion Heights Junior Middle School took the award for “Impact on School & Community,” which is presented to the venture that provides the best solutions to a local issue, raises awareness, or makes a positive change in the school or within the community.  It also recognizes the venture that impacts the life, motivation and learning of one or more students.  Albion Heights students created a Food for Thought Breakfast Club to assist those who go to school hungry. To support the needs in the community, team members developed a nutritious, delicious, and budget-conscious menu.
